What kind of products do you sell?
Leather goods - wallets, bags, belts and other personal items.

How did you get started?
I was inspired by other leather crafters. I bought a couple pieces and knew it's something I could do.

Why are you a maker?
My day job allows me to be creative, but in a digital way. I wanted to create something tangible that will be part of someone's daily life for a long time. I wanted to create something that will tell a story. The way leather looks, feels and smells is always changing. It tells a story.

What inspires you?
Other crafters. It amazes me how creative and passionate people are.

What is your favourite product that you sell?
My favourite product are my wallets. I love watching how they patina* over time.

*Patina, when referring to leather, is the soft sheen that is developed through use and exposure on the surface of the material.

What is your favourite product that another maker sells?
I love homemade hot sauces. 1 Spicy Mama has a great selection.

What is your most popular product?
My belts. These are rugged, tough and age beautifully. Top grain leather and solid brass hardware means it'll be the last belt you buy. Everyone deserves a quality belt.

What's one fun fact that someone might not know about you?
I could eat tacos everyday and be ok with it.

Where can people find you on social media?
